March 27th, 2017 by Innkeeper

Storm Watching on the Oregon Coast

December 16th, 2016 by Innkeeper

With abundant and easy access to the Pacific beaches, it isn’t difficult to find a spot to stare, in awe of nature’s fearsome wrath.  Book a room at the Arch Cape Inn & Retreat, and get ready for a truly awesome adventure on Oregon’s Coast this winter.   Read the rest of this entry »

Elk and the Oregon Coast Trail

September 20th, 2016 by Innkeeper

image1-smallThis time of year, the last of Summer’s beautiful weather begins to turn toward Fall.  As Summer winds down, the Elk….aka The Elusive Wapati…. begin to descend from the Coast Range in search of food.  We are the lucky beneficiaries of this annual migration, where Elk can be seen in our yard, along the roads and down the many trails that surround the Inn.

In that the Arch Cape Inn nestles along the Oregon Coast Trail, we often recommend that our guests take advantage of of both of these unique opportunities…to hike along the OCT and to likely see the Elk.  Enjoy an especially stunning, but difficult hike from Arch Cape to Short Sands.  This hike can be modified for all interest levels and abilities.

Tidepools

Arch Cape Inn and Retreat is in the process of changing its mission statement and daily living activities in order to become eligible for green certification. A particular emphasis for us focuses on protecting and preserving the water quality of our local area.
In an effort to keep our water clean, water that surrounds us everywhere, we are making  changes in our habits. One such change that is easy to do is to use ordinary vinegar in a spray bottle as a surface cleaning agent.
